Audeze have launched the word’s smallest planar magnetic headphones, their in ear iSINE range. Audeze say ‘The iSINE 10 sounds and looks like no others, an innovative design without a care for the same old status quo of balanced armature or dynamic driver designs. The Fluxor Magnets and large 30mm planar magnetic diaphragms deliver precise control and fast response times without distortion so music always sounds alive. Add the included Lightning cable with DSP and there’s no other in-ear headphone that even comes close to its performance.’ Of the iSINE 20 they say ‘The iSINE 20 is one step up from the iSINE 10 featuring an even longer Uniforce voice-coil that covers the ultra-thin diaphragm to a greater extent, enabling better control and responsiveness for better bass, clarity, and improved imaging.’
They have miniaturised their planar and the iSINE series weigh barley 20g. Both the iSINE 10 and iSINE 20 are hand crafted in Audeze’s California factory and the company have worked with DesignworksUSA, a BMW Group Company, in the design and development of the new IEMs.
